The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated unzip package fix security vulnerabilities :

The unzip command line tool is affected by heap-based buffer overflows within the CRC32 verification (CVE-2014-8139), the test_compr_eb() (CVE-2014-8140) and the getZip64Data() (CVE-2014-8141) functions. The input errors may result in in arbitrary code execution. A specially crafted zip file, passed to the command unzip -t, can be used to trigger the vulnerability.

OOB access (both read and write) issues also exist in test_compr_eb() that can result in application crash or other unspecified impact. A specially crafted zip file, passed to the command unzip -t, can be used to trigger the issues.


Update the affected unzip package.
